I know I can't be the first to think of this, but I couldn't find anything posted, so I decided to make a thread about it...

Color coded user groups for each faction.
Purple (Red Considering there is already a purple group) for EP
Blue for DC
Gold/Yellow for AD
And the default Grey for undecided

Im not positive how hard it would be to do this considering how easy it is to change your faction... But it would be more attractive and easier to differenciate each faction if this happened.

I'm trying to keep things as simple and straight-forward as possible. Because of this, the only colors that we use here are Gold for staff members, Blue for writers, Purple for contributors, and Gray for members.

I personally don't like the idea of further segregating our community by using different colors for each faction. We have enough of a problem as it is trying to keep everyone civil with each other, and color-coded usernames will likely only magnify the problem. I don't know if you've noticed, but sometimes faction rivalry can get out of hand.

Though as usual, thank you for the suggestion. I'll leave this open for anyone to chime in and give their thoughts on this as well. This is my own personal opinion and I won't hold back such features solely because of that.

I am using colours when I feel the need as it is a powerful communicator. As yet Zenimax have not specified colours for each faction and as a Saxhleel I am promoting lime (and other shades of greens).

I agree with Tecca's comments that emphisising the factions through colours on TESOF could throw oil on the "Xenophobia" intrinsic to The Elder Scrolls environment. Its a thin line between reality and fantasy but role play is one of the many thrilling aspects of gaming.

In my opinion, Tecca's username should be bright, barbie-hot pink.

Why not just change the font colour where it lists your Faction & Race, under your avatar?

Faction & Race:
Ebonheart Pact
(Argonian)

The colours used by the actual usernames should remain relevant to the forum, not which faction we've chosen to use for the game.

Wow, I forgot about this post, lol

But yeah, I agree with on that point... I've been here for less than a week and I can see the tension rising still from the day I joined, lmao

Honestly, I was just jelly of Lobsel's and Xoo's purple... Tongue_out_laughing
